This is a restaurant located near the Intercontinental Hotel. Their specialty is Nicaraguan food. The restaurant is a ranch type, very Nicaraguan, where you can order typical dishes from the region and meat dishes. Kind personnel. Low prices, about $9 per main dish.

Excellent service, but my "Filete de pollo" was too salty and greasy. The chicken itself was tender and tasty, I wish I could rinse the salt off. The same as "fresco", it was too sweet for me. In this sense, this place truly represents Nica flavor, too much salt, too much oil and too much sugar.

This is a rustic looking restaurant that is a bit deceptive as it houses a menu with a wide variety of choices (though not for vegetarians), professional service and all credit cards honored. It was recommended to me by my hotel up the street and I could not have been more pleased. The grilled pork chops were out of site... More

Our hotel was down the block and this place was recommended to us, so we walked down for dinner. Nicely decorated, open air restaurant with a wood fired grill where you can see, hear and smell the enticing offerings being prepared. This place specializes in grilled meats but we had fish and shrimp which were also tasty. We ate and... More

This place is fantastic. Food is fresh steaks are tender and perfectly cooked. Service amazingly good compared the usual. Pricing is unbelievable. Definitely not for the veggies, however their grilled vegetable salad was quite excellent. They will even arrange a lobster surf and turf from the great fish place next door. Any where that does a "meat boat for 6"... More

The atmosphere was nice as was the service. The food was good but for less money many of the smaller less fancy places did just as well with the beef and other meats.

We were referred here by our hotel, Hotel Internacional. The restaurant did not disappoint. The three of us chose a sampler platter of sorts and were pleased with the meal. Everything was delicious and the atmosphere was nice.

We ate at El Gueguense after being recommended to it by our hotelier at Hotel Internacional just 1/2 block away. At first I was leary that he had some connection and that it wouldn't be great, but honestly, in hindsight, it ended up being on of the best meals we had in Nicaragua! I will say that it was the...
